Zou Shiming is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. He is trained by Freddie Roach and this will be his third professional bout. I’m going with resume alone with this one.

Bob Arum‘s Chinese boxing experiment continues at the Cotai Arena on Saturday with some interesting undercard bouts. We’ll see the return of Zou Shiming, a Chinese Olympic hero against Juan Tozcano. I don’t think Bob is quite ready for Shiming to be greatly challenged yet, so just on general principle he will be triumphant in front of his adoring Chinese countrymen and fans.

Zou Shiming, the Olympic gold medalist, will get to put on a show in front of the hometown crowd. A bit old for a Flyweight to be starting a career, Shiming has had a long amateur career and I see him using that experience to outbox Juan Tozcano to a easy victory over a fighter we don’t know much about.

Juan Tozcano is 4-0, 1 KOs. But, the combined record of his opponents is 2-21-3. Tozcano doesn’t have the amateur pedigree that Zou Shiming does, so I think the difference in skill should be evident early. While I don’t think Shiming is the real deal, I do think he is good enough to defeat Tozcano.
